CABRA PARK PHIBSBORO

ST. PETERS LANE


SORRY FOR THE DELAY
For the many years I have tried to find out if this laneway had a name and anyone that I asked told me that it was ‘Cabra Park Lane’ and while I was not fully convinced I have referred to it as such in my blogs.

Note: Cabra Park is in Phibsboro [Phibsborough] rather than Cabra.

Having purchased a second hand Sony 24-70 GM lens today I decided to to visit parts of the city near where I live and I ended up in Cabra Park and when I got to the lane I discovered new street signs indicating that the laneway is officially ’St. Peters Lane’.

I don’t normally buy second hand lenses but today I got an offer that I could not refuse. I was offered an almost new Sony 24-70 2.8 GM lens at a very low price [it had been used for a specific video production project for three or four days and it was no longer needed by the production company] and as I was saving for this lens with the intention of getting it in July or August I had no option but to find the cash. This is my second lens GM but I was also offered the 85mm lens for Euro 1300 but there was no way that I could pay for it and as I already have the Sony 90mm Macro it is unlikely that I will buy it in the future.
